Dauin is a coastal town, and not particularly large, but its popularity has expanded in recent years. The ambiance and scenery all perfectly mesh together to form an unforgettable experience, especially when it comes to diving. There are plenty of resorts in the area, each one better than the last, and practically all of them organize local excursions into nearby popular places like Apo Island. Even though the waters are ideal for snorkeling and diving, the beaches are not the main focus of the island, as they’re made from volcanic ash. Reaching Dauin is easy, as it’s about 10-20 minutes travel from Dumaguete City.
